Abstract

We consider a distributed power control algorithm for infrastructureless ad hoc wireless networks, where each link distributively and asynchronously updates its transmission power with limited message passing among links. This algorithm provably converges to the set of global optimal solutions despite the non-convexity of the power control problem. In contrast with existing distributed power control algorithms, our algorithm makes no stringent assumptions on the system utility functions. In particular, the utility function is allowed to be concave or non-concave, differentiable or non-differentiable, continuous or discontinuous, and monotonic or non-monotonic.
